    Default RipStick advice?

    Anyone here bought a ripstick for their kid (or have one themselves?) My daughters want one and I need input on what to buy. I know nothing about them.
    Any help is appreciated.....

    You too, eh? My boys are all about skateboarding and that crap right now - just don't see what the attraction is.

    A RipStick is kind of a skateboard it's like two separate pieces with two wheels each, joined together in the middle so each end can move separate of the other, I guess to give one the sensation of riding on a tilt-a-whirl while not sitting in one of the cars! Trust me, nothing beats the real thing!

    Haha I think you should be glad your kids are skateboarding, instead of sitting on their asses playing wii/xbox all day long, like all other kids!

    Never seen a RipStick though, probably it's just an American thing yet. But it looks cool

    I'm thinking of just getting the plain ol' Ripstick made by Razr. I found it at Target for $78 - does that sound like a decent price?

    Both my kids can ride one we just don't HAVE one... we promised if they were good in the car coming home from Spring Break (9 hours) we'd buy one....
    And yes I, too, am thrilled my girls are outside, tree climbing, bike riding and now Ripstik-n' gals. We don't allow TV during the week, computer is 30 minutes 4 days a week (unless there is homework that the computer is needed) and I am proud to say we have no Xbox, Wii, ect... (although I want one!) my children scream abuse at this oh well!

    My oldest saw one of those while we were down in South Florida and decided he wanted one...until I reminded him that the closest paved area is about 1/2 a mile away and crowded with idiot drivers going double the posted speed limit.

    As for computer/video games/TV, that horse is way to far gone from the barn. The older 2 have their own laptop, which is to be used for homework and afterwards for playing around. School nights are limited to 7PM on games and computer, when they get their showers and can watch TV until bedtime. The youngest tends to get a reprieve on games if he has one of his teaching/learning games in his Nintendo DS.

    I know what you mean by the video games though. We bought the boys a Wii last year and ended up having to buy a second one shortly thereafter so the Mrs and I could play. Problem is, after playing Wii sports against each other for so long, she ended up hurting her right arm to the point she couldn't play anymore. Although we do compete in other, not so active, games.

    Actually, the Wii comes in handy sometimes...depending on what the stakes are and who wins.
